A trusted source of Asia-Pacific commercial aviation news and analysis
Orient Aviation, the Asia-Pacific's first solely commercial aviation news magazine, was launched in October, 1993, as a quarterly. Its mission is to introduce the news and the news makers of the region's commercial aviation industry to the industry's regional and global readership. Since that first issue, which featured a cover story on Singapore Airlines and its managing director, Dr.Cheong Choong Kong, Orient Aviation has grown into the region's most respected media platform for commercial aviation news, CEO profiles and analysis.
In October 2014, the Hong Kong-based Orient Aviation Media Group, which has grown into a multi media organization that also conducts industry conferences, reached a new milestone - 21 years of uninterrupted, high quality coverage of the region's commercial aviation news.
